Caricatures published by the weekly Shali Abdul back in two thousand fifteen and that triggered deadly attacks on the satirical newspapers headquarters. At the time those characters were then republished by Shali Abdul to coincide with the trial of the accomplices in that two thousand, fifteen attack. This is in fact, the second terror related incident since that trial began because last month a man armed with meat cleaver tried to storm. What he thought was still Shalhoub does headquarters in Paris and two injured two people in what was a botched attack.

Samuel Patty had held a discussion with his pupils about freedom of speech and the issue of the caricatures depicting the Prophet Mohammed had been shown in the context of that discussion. However, it should be pointed out that Patty told pupils who might be offended by the caricatures that he was about to should them to them and he said they could leave the room if they wanted to. But nevertheless, all of this prompted complaints from some of the parents of Muslim children in that class and as the issue drew more and more attention, the schools thought had receiving threatening phone calls and the father of one particular schoolgirl is reported to launched an appeal on line calling for action to be taken against similar petty. We'll all the while these school offered its full support, the teacher and tried to engage in dialogue with the parents who complained. And then on Friday this eighteen year old attack came to the school asking the people to point out the teacher in question which they did, and he then killed him. So. Does been shocking sequence of events has been disbelief at the barbarism of this crime, and the fact that someone should have been beheaded for raising the issue of freedom of expression, which is such a core tenet of what it means to be.

The Verdict on Trump's Economic Stewardship
"President Trump speaking to the economic of New York and various economic clubs across the country and we had questioning from Senate O'CONNELL of the Economic Club of Florida David Rudenstine of DC and Mike. O'Neill. The New York we have Michael McKee with us now our chief. Correspondent for all things economic both and. and Michael a very serious conversation here the president's putting out some ideas couple of inflammatory statements like how Joe Biden Presidency would be a socialist dream in American nightmare. But at the end, he was asked about things like infrastructure stimulus national debt did we hear anything new from the President? No, but we haven't been hearing much new from him throughout this campaign. It's he mostly talks about what happened in the previous three or four years and he talks a lot about, of course what happened to the Obama Administration? The questions he was asked about infrastructure spending he didn't answer. He said what he always says about many different things that he has a plan, but there's never any plan they were coming close to a deal on infrastructure at least Democrats in the House and the president when the President got upset with Nancy Pelosi and broke off the talks and that was two years ago and nothing's been done on infrastructure since. The House and Senate have a very big differences about how you would pay for infrastructure and how you'd structure the program. He said today the walls one of the biggest infrastructure projects ever. That's not true. He did shut down the border under the guise pandemic protection. So that part of what he said about the wall was correct he was asked about the deficit. and. Has Somebody. Else says quite often about this. This is one of those. Up his down down his up trump statements, he said the deficit was falling and we were GONNA pay off interest costs and start paying down principal on the deficit before the pandemic hit. That's one hundred percent one, hundred, eighty degrees opposite from what was happening deficit was rising significantly before the pandemic because of the tax cuts so. It's hard to know exactly what he was trying to do other than insult. Joe Biden and and stir up his base. Yes. Absolutely I think that's probably what we can expect from him. As we approach the elections three weeks left and we're going to get viewers questions. You know at some point tomorrow night's tonight and facts as we will be hearing a lot more from the president on economic matters and so on. But really nothing moves the needle. Until we get some more idea of what happens with stimulus and Ardley Nancy Pelosi doesn't look like. She's about to give in to to to president trump's requests or whatever republicans are requesting not that that's now well, even here's the thing we have to remember that even if the speaker of the House and the Secretary of the Treasury agree on some kind of deal, it would have to pass the Senate as well as the house. A number of house members have already suggested Dowse House Democrats have suggested they would vote against it because. They don't think it's big enough and. The question then becomes how many Republicans would vote for it if it's not considered big enough then in the Senate, you don't have fifty senators who approve of it. The Democrats are pretty united against it and half of the Republican senators say they don't want to spend anything. So at this point, there's a lot of focus on wall, street about the talks talks. In quotation marks between Nancy Pelosi and Steven Mnuchin. But the odds of something actually happening particularly before election day very, very small. Yes and for some reason and she wasn't quite care about yesterday when she was speaking with Wolf Blitzer Nancy Pelosi is not willing to even consider this one point eight, trillion dollar stimulus. What is it in their Michael? Can you decipher? that. She's so against she was actually quite angry with the to Democrats that said that they should be accepting this. The part of the play. A part of it is the way the money is distributed. Part of it is the amount of money for states and localities is not enough they believe and part of it obviously is politics. They don't WanNa give, Donald Trump. He kind of victory before the election you remember the last time when the cares act was passed in the twelve hundred dollars was going out for those who got it in check form trump held up distribution of the checks until he could have his name printed on it and last thing Nancy Pelosi wants is for voters to be opening their mail the day before the election and seeing Donald Trump giving them twelve hundred dollars. Yes that is to I'm sure and also presumably that machine is up and running now. So there may not be so much of a delay this time around but there is an argument to suggest that people need cash. Now, no matter how it comes in a matter who gets the credit right Michael Danny lower on earlier saying this country is in trouble there is particularly because more people are losing their jobs. Now, as we're finding more companies go out of business and. The airlines are a perfect example not going out of business, but laying off tens of thousands of people because they don't have any business to do at this point, and that was one of the hopes of the stimulus bills that they could get aid to the airlines in the short-term But nother interesting statistic came out from the New York Fed yesterday of the people who got the stimulus checks the first time around average of about twenty four, hundred dollars each seventy one percent either save the money or paid down debt. They have money in the bank and so if this. Rebound continued to go faster than expected. We might have a tailwind and we might need less of the stimulus checks I think the biggest difference now is that there are going to be people who. Didn't save. Don't have the money who are losing jobs permanently who may need something yeah. I found that phenomenal as well when you consider just how many people are at food banks in food lines as well who were once you know happily employed or all of the people around Orlando that are living motels because they'll also job at. Disney. For example. have to move every two weeks. Otherwise they risk you know Being, a problem for the Ho- The motel owner because after two weeks you can't you know get victim normally you have to go through the court process i. mean there are an array of stories out there about people suffering, Michael. What should we be concentrating on over the next couple of days? It's feels like Joe Biden needs to get more of an economic message out there. Actually, Biden probably needs to publicize it Joe Biden. If you look on their website has a very extensive economic plan that. Involves taxes infrastructure Various Pandemic Recovery ideas and Donald Trump and I'm not saying this to be part of Donald Trump has nothing. If you go to his website, there are literally no proposals for a second term and so it's kind of hard to know. what he would do and Biden perhaps wants to make that case a little bit more Donald Trump talked today about. Biden plans but if you notice it in his speech, he didn't say what he would do. He talked a lot about how bad the Biden and the Democrat tar and that's one of the problems people have suggested that we're seeing with trump's poll numbers is that at this point he is. Talking, about the previous four years and a lot of people didn't like what happened in the previous four years outside of the tax cut. and. He's not talking about what happens in the next four years or even in the next year and that makes it hard to make a case for your election. Yeah, it's a it's a phenomenal time and a lot of people pointing out now that if we don't get something before the election, it's going to be January. Before we're able to do more stimulus Michael thank you really appreciate your input and listening to that for us with Michael McKee. International airports, and policy. Correspondent.

National security experts describe a distracted and potentially vulnerable country
"President Trump's hospitalization raises not only health concerns, but national security concerns. More now from KCBS is Dan Mitchinson. The country is in a vulnerable situation, says former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Anytime president is ill or incapacitated. National security implications are involved. Panetta tells me. That means other countries China, Russia and Iran, all three of which the U. S has tangled with during the Trump administration. Could see the president's illness as an opportunity. They might exploit that situation in a way that could further undermine our stability. But Panetta is also concerned about the information coming out of the White House and what we're being told or not told about the president's condition. You've got a white house that isn't that forthright. About what is taking place, and that creates a certain element of distrust. That's the reason it makes a hell of a lot of sense just to be forthright to be transparent. And to present the honest truth to the American people

Let my people vote Desmond Welcome back to in the thick where those star as love it that he brought him. Desmond Welcome welcome. Well, what a journey it's been. I mean for your life but since we last had you on, it was early in two thousand eighteen and at that time you were still fighting to restore voting rights to Floridians who had passed felony convictions or is your organization calls them what I like to say these are returning citizens. This is a mission for you because you talk about inclusive democracy says, is someone who went from serving time for a felony conviction to being homeless to graduating law school and your stories. Incredible. What has been your experience with this? What is your story and what inspires you to organize for restoring Buddha Rights There's two main reasons you know in two thousand and five you know I did hit rock bottom. So I was standing in front of railroad tracks waiting on the train and come so I can jump in front of it That's how far down the road I'd on. And But for some reason, they're trained income that Dan I did cross those tracks and I checked myself into drug treatment and moved in a homeless shelter, and after that I wrote in school and to eventually get a law degree but I could not practiced law because I'm not allowed to apply to the floor the bar until my civil rights have been restored this last election cycle, my wife ran for office and I couldn't even vote for. So. Then later in the year two, thousand, eighteen in November a constitutional amendment. Amendment for passed through a ballot initiative in the state of Florida, you spent so many years fighting for this. Let's listen back to the moment that he passed your organization, the Florida Rights Restoration coalition shared this on social media. So. This amendment basically means that roughly check this out one point four, million, one, point, four, million returning citizens in Florida could have their voting rights restored after they completed all of the terms of their sentence now.

PHOENIX, emerging from the ashes, a sense of renewed hope and correction and understanding, and imagining not the old democracy but a new democracy, and I'm telling you everything lines up because when you think about that amendment for. Created a pathway for one point four million people who had some type of personal intimate connection or action with our law enforcement system. Right. When you think about Francis the killing of Ahmad Aubrey where a prosecutor to go the seventy days before they decided the charge of people at murder. This man in broad daylight right prosecutors are elected and who knows better about prosecuted in someone who's been prosecuting then you talk about George Floyd. Having that. Put His Leon neck for eight minutes and forty six seconds and killed this person in broad daylight with his hands in his pocket like he had no care in the world right who know better about having a need on their negative in someone who has been arrested by a police officer who knows better of the aggressive takedown tactics of law enforcement ease sheriffs are elected in these chief of police are appointed by mayors who are elected in new.

Yet because the video interview and it's buzzing, people are looking down and they're looking at their phone or something else and they're fidgeting around and moving around and this is bad bad bet. It's a distraction for you and the person interview number to watch the up and down I move across the screen. I never thought about this until reading this article this really true when you're on a screen. and. You're doing a conversation with somebody you tend to your eyes are darting all around screen time. Is it here? I'm looking down here to get a couple of emails o a chat just came or whatever, and you're not looking at the person here's the deal just because it's a video interview, you need to have the same rules as an in person interview. We all know those people you meet them at an event and you're talking to them and they're scanning over your shoulder to see if there's somebody more interesting to look at Voi-. Number three.

"leon" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"He knew what was going on I said Mac I I need to look. At an organization chart for the White House and he said you know Leon I don't believe I've ever seen one of those and I thought man. I really am screwed. There's the problem. And so I almost had to rely a great deal on my army experience, because it was about a publishing chain of command who would report to process? Yeah, a process of discipline and supervision on the various staff members in the Clinton administration. There were a lot of people who carried this title of console to the President which meant that they could go to all the meetings talk, but never had any responsibility for doing anything and so I get. Get rid of all. The consoles to the president and stabbed. You know a clear chain of command I had two deputy chiefs of Staff, one for personnel, one for scheduling and people under them that they would be responsible for decided to try to control access to the Oval Office did that work. It did because Bill Clinton recognized that it had to be done as a matter of fact John Kelly when he became chief of staff to President Trump. Called me and said what do I need to do and John Kelly had worked for you directly. He had worked for me as a military when I was secretary of Defense. I said John I said. You know you're a marine. You need to have a strong chain of command. You need have disciplined. You need to control access to the White House. You need to establish systems for policy development so that the president is well served by those that are experts and know the issues and percents those options to the president. The biggest problem you have is the President I was working for knew that he had to be disciplined. He was smart enough to know. That he was not going to get reelected. If the White House was in chaos on, so he was willing to go along with the discipline. I said. You're working for somebody who I'm not sure. Really understands what disciplined about. He said I know but I. I really think I can try to apply. That same kind of framework, so it was really interesting, because in many ways I think John was dealing with some of the same chaos I added to deal with this UH chief of staff I would imagine every white. House has some degree of chaos and some degree of discipline. It's just a question of the ratio. You're absolutely right. It's It is a a huge responsibility to suddenly walk into the Oval Office..

"You did all nine hundred. Kids love cool runnings. I did not know that that was a real story again until like I was much older. You know I lived in Jamaica. Saint Ann's Bay probably three to four months out of the year for ten years. Yes so when? They went scouting for school running some late. Don't steal when she. They came back and they called me into Disney for a meeting. They were like what is it. What you in Jamaica everywhere we go they say. Leeann has to be in the movie favorite guy so she was like Yeah they just they just love you. I said well that's where I go after every move. How did you go about both making this role yours but also staying true to the character that you portrayed you know for me? It's the most important thing is to bring the character life Tak- writers words and make their character real. You know and I think I remember something in. La Times viewing cool runnings and said that. I'm that I made my character. So real the felt as though he was sitting right next to you sometimes and to me like there was a high price too. Because because I'm you know for me that's my job. My job is to make that character real. You know and so when I was preparing for cool runnings if you so my room. They was like every sprinter. There was you know and I have tried to match my body against theirs and you know. Make sure that I look like I could be a runner because beginning of a story especially when you play the lead character movie if you can convince people that you are that person from the very beginning you can take them anyway. Even taking the Mars and they'll believe you as long as they believe you. Are that person I would file tomorrow. I would just decided absolutely you in a little movie called above the Rim Arpita TWO-PACK R. P. TO BERNIE MAC. What do you think you in particular brought to such a very the cast so one thing you know? I don't live a life to talk about anything that I've done is any better than anyone else. but in talking about above the. Rim. I do like to say that I believe that for ball players. That's the best movie because we'll know because everyone in there were balls with those guys you saw in the street those all like schoolyard legends from the record. Yeah our practices for the roles like that the scrimmages at nyu our great Duane. Martin you know it was one of the last guys cut from the Knicks and meaning. He could really ball and You know you know scoring New York everything else in high school so I mean it was it was real ball and so I I like to say that One of the things that I brought to the role was obviously the experience of being a real ball player and that same park to be played in. I averaged thirty point game in when I was in high school at the record so every everything was very familiar to me. But on the flip side you know. That's a character in Thomas. Shepherd is a character and I played the character. Even the way I played basketball in. That movie is not the way I play per se. That's the way I thought my character would play. Okay naturally am illegally obligated to talk to you about the temptations legally obligated. If I don't do it ushered out immediately. We don't WanNa see that happen so one of your most iconic lines. Everyone knows I've been practicing this line for my whole life. Maybe give me take ten years. Well well well well I I would actually like to challenge you to an Otis off to an ain't nobody coming to see you this not fan because one that role. I played longtime ago. I don't really watch my movies because after a while I stopped taking myself apart in all your head like that. Why you lips lives. Look funny you only do that. I'll just leave it alone. People love it. You Watch them all the time. You say the line all the time so you have a distinct advantage over me. I'm not a professional actor though that works against me but I can tell you something this important. What's that the history of the line. Expound what do you mean wasn't in the script what no it wasn't no improvise? We were in rehearsals. You know I I. Was there rough at the entire time. Okay and I found out later. My co-stars particularly care but I stayed in that role the entire time. So I was always thinking of things and and telling the director and producers and stuff and things that I had researched and the way things were and actually I said that line in rehearsal and Allen. Aw Push came and whispered in my ear and said you know he doesn't really like it when you say that. And I turned to him and said he's not supposed to. Did you see reaction on his face when I said I said? Isn't that what you want? So I just provide the line and next thing I know it's like the line follows me around the world. Okay so instead of a challenge still feel like I would lose. Maybe you can be my acting coach for like a second. I will deliver the land for you. You let me know how I do. Okay Okay and don't don't hold back just because I'm very charming and fragile like a flower flower flow. Okay Zone action by the communist oldest and seeing really good. Because I know I'm saying that because you've got the most important thing what was that about it. Not The words Your Lips. I'm glad he's bad. You mean that for real well. I'm in the wrong field. I quit everybody. I'm an actress now so obviously played your cable bill. Well my finance. We'd like to end every episode of this show with some rapid fire questions. Random goofy black hail ready good. Let's do it. What does it feel like to be caught? Alleged credibly humbling and nuts to me. Who was your first celebrity crush? Or that's easy dying Carol Good answer do you have any current celebrity crushes? Not that on the celebrity talking about me. No I can't say how many crushes on anybody You know there's there's so many people out there who I would like to share the screen with Stage with just because I'm just a fan of the I am a fan of people's work dream role I mean. I think there's A. There's a type of movie that I like to do because it's the movie that My fans and I say fans I mean predominantly women because especially women will Cohen. They've made my career without them. I wouldn't be senior talking to you and And they've they've said to me many times they'd love to see me and I love to do like a gut wrenching. Romance Mahogany or elite sings the blues or something like that. He didn't ask my heart. I don't know if I'm ready I am I would I would definitely Love and be open to do something like that. It'd be fantastic and I think I've done a certain type of role that people like to. Siemian like to see me tubes. Scenery like to see play musical roles and I've always been cast to play him. You know so but if I could cast myself played anybody I would play sly stone. I can see it soon as you said that. Essiet big David Ruffin look like acquire. Oh my Gosh Oh my goodness this is my new Christmas. Wish a need for this to happen. No pressure but please. Don't let me down this. There's no pressure on my manages.

Didn't you know I was very very always into fashion? I was always fashioned for I was always Aware of things around me never wanted to be like everybody else and you know I think growing up in finding your waves especially when you're young it's it's a learning curve and I think that your your parents are the ones that see it firsthand. So I remember. My mom was a fight. They were mom said When I first started making movies and people come up to her and she'd be like A. Do you know you know your son. Is You know I saw him in this? This and that she said people doing that to me my whole life so it was no big deal for her so she already knew. I guess she knew. Exactly how but he actually knew. When did you? When did the acting bug? Let's see the acting bug. You know when I was in eighth grade. I saw my older sister's class to a rock and roll revival and I want to parochial schools my whole life so we used to do this. Catholic schools. Yeah and so we used to just corny variety show And it was horrible in so I convinced the nuns and my school. Could we do this? Rock and roll revival which you know I play Chubby checker mother friendly Elvis Presley Golden. Girls play the Andrews Sisters. You convince to let you do yes. Rock'n'roll viable yeah and it was Macquarie all numbers and everything and it was great and they asked us to do it like two more nights and so I think those first time really had that bug. Um and it was funny. There was a musical for some reason. And then you know as I got older things has happened to find me that things found versus finding things very humble very homeway to say that So you went to Catholic Schools Anyway. You Yourself Catholic. Yes Catholic My Mom's a deacon in the church. My Dad is going to church every day. Some very curious as to how they felt about a certain music video that you were in in in nineteen eighty nine with a certain Madonna like a prayer loved it. Did they wouldn't well?

Wow there's a lot going on in this video especially for it to be nineteen eighty nine or you know the video. was extremely positive video. And if you're a religious person especially a Christian Like myself and Madonna. At the time you know couldn't be a more positive story. You know for me as an actor into the stories everything so I don't want to talk about one of my favorite movies with you. The five heartbeats how did this movie find you or did you go and find the movie. Other movie definitely found me kind of yes. I didn't know anything about it. Actually Robert Townsend Sola me. I didn't know him saw me at the. Mtv Awards With Madonna and Originally the five heartbeats was written by Robert Townsend kidding brothers and it took a while to get made and then you no kidding in living color survive. We got to go after the brother brother. He wanted so and I met Robert and it was interesting situation for me interesting. How is it just? Because the way he was talking to me he probably around a corner where they will. She built theaters and he was saying. You know I see you as a black matinee idol. Someone that women will go to the movies for just because you're in the movies you know. Say they do at the white guys and I'll say you. Do you surprised to hear that like me. Who when you're an actor in this so much depends on what people think of you and even when you work with someone thinks you work everything so subjective you know so the here so like Robert Johnson who at the time is coming off Hollywood shuffle and with someone you know. We were looking forward to seeing doing some great things to talk to me like that. I mean unless he's a pill really talked to me like that I'm like okay really lake is just what you see okay. I'm with it. Let's do it. You know so You know that was experienced robin in the. We've been close ever since everyone that I've talked to about him says similar story like he saw me in a different way or he spoke to me in a different way was working on set with Robert. Different from like other directors that you've worked with themselves so how will work and we Robert was was different in a few ways one at that particular point. Mostly all the directors. I've worked with white so that respective it was different but also different from me because I was a bit of a method actor so in I just stay in my role entire time and like to live and breathe the role and I was a little bit funny to be honest with you working with a guy who's also my director you know. I didn't know that I was going to be you know it was like. He's my brother in the movie. He's also directly. Yeah you know so. It was weird but I think after the long rehearsal process which was like six or seven weeks through and through You know I got used to it and we just rolled from there. Yeah I've always been fascinated by the idea of method acting because I feel like whenever I hear about it. I only hear about like extremes like so and so like moved into a cave or something for a month to prepare for this. So what did method acting look like for this particular route? How did you prepare for it? Prepared for the five heartbeats was it was definitely different from when I do the temptations or little Richard or anything like that. Because it's a fictional group and you know so. This is my role to make what I wanted to be. And you know I was very confident in the fact that you know I was right for this role so for me. It was more about creating a character that was memorable that was like anyone else. I think all the characters like that in the movie. I think that's the reason why people would around thinking five. Harvey's is real group really told me that they found that the five harpies wasn't a real group and they weren't that says they found that there was no Santa home. I believe it. I believe absolutely so to that note. I want to switch directions nearly completely to another movie that.

"And Television brought to you by Netflix and strangling each week.

We things I want to welcome you back with his brand new season with brand new legends brand new conversations for the same old black. Asked me if you are new to the family than welcome? Welcome come on in the call. Sit Down keep your hands and feet out my new furniture because I just got all of it done and I'm not doing it again at the top of every show I remind you what type of parent I would be.

I know that you know about Leon but now know about Leeann. You only need to know his first name. Leon that's it so if you listen to season one of the show And if you have not first of all how dare you? Second of all is okay. You can go back and realism. It's fine every episode of the show has an interview with a black Hollywood icon and also a segment called.

"leon" Discussed on The Lead
"Yeah that was probably a low point for the season probably for the last five seasons or sell and James Zone. Sitting courtside is all of this was happening and obviously he heard it. He walked out with a few seconds to go still in the game. Probably wasn't coincidence that all this happened after that night. So after Steve Mills gets fired we start hearing the Knicks are looking at an agent to replace him and everyone kind of assumes that that's rich Paul right who represents tons of players of course Lebron James and then the name that comes out is Leon rose. If I'm Nick Fan all the sudden you hear the knows news. Leeann roses now. The new president of New York Knicks. Are you basically run into Madison Square Garden or go to the NBA store? Go Get a New Jersey. I don't think you are. They think when a lot of knicks fans heard about his hiring. You know we went from Messiah Jiri to rich Paul to Leeann rose. So who is this guy? Leon rose might be the most powerful agent in the NBA. That you might not have curl now for those who don't know who they are. Roses may not be a household name but certainly degrade is respected in the industry and with the players. He represents I think because he's a guy who went to high school in New Jersey went to law school at Temple Became an assistant prosecutor the Camden County Prosecutor's office. And you always had a bug for basketball. School tried to coach a little bit. That didn't go. And so he went in joined his father's law firm in New Jersey and then slowly in the mid nineties and started to accumulate clients Starting with one low client Brunson and he had a cachet of guys in Australia. And he built that up into this law firm and the Sports Agency that she stopped by and he became head of sports and his big break really came in two thousand two when he signed. Ai Yeah Alan. Iverson obviously was one of the biggest stars at the time. Sir seven straight ever looked like he was Alan. Iverson was with an agent at the time took on. Leon rose to represent him in that. Really put me on on the map. Because when you Alan Iverson. Everyone knows who you are. Everyone wants to get in touch with you while so roses star continues to rise as an agent in two thousand five he lands. Lebron is a client and he and Lebron move to see a together and eventually rose has a hand informing the Miami Heat. Big Three with Lebron Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. So it's Wade's House. Lebron's kingdom and bashes fit baby have an opportunity to team with arguably the best to ever play the game of basketball was amazing see represented all three of those guys and I think the fact that ca was involved with three help put together you know what was probably the defining episode in the last twenty years for the League and get all three of them to Miami in that same summer in two thousand and ten and Leon was one of the more prominent people involved and over the years as roses. Power continued to grow. He really accumulated some marquee names as his clients. Yeah with Lebron with Carmelo Anthony. He signed Joel embiid later on when he went into the NBA Devon Booker. Karl Anthony towns. He represents the stable now young players as well as the superstar veterans and. I think that's what helps him. Maintain ours in agent maintain credibility and it probably would made him attractive to the Knicks when they're looking for their next president. Another factor. Here is that. There's some pretty significant history between Leon rose and the Knicks. He represented Carmelo Anthony while Carmelo was with the Knicks for a period. There around two thousand thirteen thousand fourteen The Knicks were really tied in. They had a kind of a symbiotic relationship in a lot of ways. I think there's some criticism at that point. The Knicks were too close to see a that probably contributed why James Dolan was comfortable upbringing in Leon Run the teams. Because he's got a history with him he's gotTa hits. You would see a and so it goes to the people that you know and it makes that type of higher easier and Mike. What's your sense of Leon as person what's he like? I think compared to maybe some other agents. He likes to say more in the background. He's not out there Talking as much to the media. He's not they I I guess. The quintessential archetype of a high powered agent. Where you think he's always in a soup you know. He's usually in jeans and a jacket or something casual like that. His friends say that he's very low key that he maintains relationships that he's very loyal and that he likes to stay out of the limelight. Which really is going to be changed for them. Once you become the head of the Knicks in New York.

Trotsky halted the progression of his transport. Soon afterward he made a daring escape through the wilderness toward Petrograd now known as Saint Petersburg none of his pursuers expected him to head directly West. Which would have been traveling from Los Angeles to Chicago in the middle of a Siberian winter? Mostly Reindeer sled but once again. Trotsky survived. He met with Natalia south of the capital and fled to the finish village of Ogle by you there they recuperated with czar back in power. The revolutionaries or back at square one and Lennon wasn't helping matters Trotsky is once mentor now. Spent his time trying to expel all non Bolsheviks from the party Trotsky fought to keep the revolutionaries unified but his relationship with Lennon waned in a letter to a friend. Trotsky vented his frustration. What a senseless obsession is the wretched squabbling systematically provoked by the master. Squabble Lennon that professional exploiter of the backwardness of the Russian working class movement years later Trotsky would remember and regret that letter for now however Trotsky and Lenin were on the outskirts of Russia arguing their way around Europe making themselves irrelevant would take another catastrophe to return the revolutionaries to power in event.

War Trotsky left Vienna Austria now being hostile to Russians and joined the other Socialists in Switzerland to decide what the revolutionaries thought of the war. They decided they didn't like it. Trotsky proposed a slogan that quickly caught on peace without conquerors or conquered. For a brief moment. There was unity among the Socialists. However the European countries hosting them weren't taking well to their criticism. Trotsky was expelled from France then Spain for his writings on the war particularly his newest and most condemning book the war and the international the Great War had gone longer and bloodier than anyone could have imagined and governments were cracking down on dissenters.

The second had once again gotten himself into trouble stuck between the meat grinder of World War One and the collapse of the country's food supply. In this time there would be no compromise in February nineteen seventeen. The military joined the peasant revolution. The royal family was under arrest. Unfortunately the hated cadets were waiting in the wings they established a provisional government following many of the Czars old policies for the revolutionaries the provisional government had to go lennon had the bolsheviks at the ready but he couldn't rally the rest of the party without a powerful and respected orator he needed his pen speaking of Trotsky and his family left New York and arrived in Saint Petersburg on May fourth. A crowd cheered him from the platform. Hailing him as a hero of the nineteen o five revolution but the city's politicians were wary. Not Knowing with whom Trotsky would side neither that seems to Trotsky. He spent a long string of months floating between parties serving the political atmosphere and found that Lenin and the Bolsheviks had radically rebranded themselves in fact their new platforms seemed somewhat familiar. We want to workers government. None of the fold was wide nonsense of the cadets a Soviet council representing the proletariate and know capitalistic interim between regimes revolution. Insurrection Socialism. I see are tough in. The mensheviks are playing cold feet. We need to act now temper.

I've been proposing the exact same plan for a decade and you sat across from me right there and told me I was an idealistic loon. I'm sure I did not say LOU IDEALISTIC LOAN. This is completely different. It is new bolshevism. You've got to be joking. All right all right Vladimir. And what do you need of me? The team was back together. Trotsky and Lenin said a plan into action Lennon working within the Bolsheviks while Trotsky flitted between parties garrisons in lecture halls rallying the military and the workers both followed non stop exhausting schedules. Trotskyites associates remembers him asking for cigarette taking a few puffs and promptly fainting but their toils paid off in spades unrest within the provisional government rose and the Trotsky Lenin duo became the face of the opposition. Trotsky soon had the army prime to storm the Winter Palace while Lennon had the Party. Ready with a replacement government. The last opposition came from the Mensheviks who saw another government takeover as dangerous but by mid October of that year Lenin and Trotsky had swayed nearly all committees independent members and overrode Martagov. The Revolution was set. The end of the month failure would mean an end for the Socialists. Everything had to go off without a hitch and remarkably. It did on October. Twenty Fifth Nineteen Seventeen regiments guards storm the winter palace dismantling the provisional government the Bolsheviks slid neatly into power Martin and the mensheviks furious but the public sentiment was against them. Trotsky derided his old party with fire and brimstone renounce. Your victory make concessions conclude an agreement.

On facebook and Instagram at park asked in twitter at podcast network now back to the life of Leon Trotsky Trotsky entered into a world in transition. Russia had just undergone economic overhaul the seven hundred year practice of serfdom abolished by Alexander the second and Russia's growth spurt continued as an industrial revolution. Rocketed them into the twentieth century? Giving power to the industrial working class the proletariate which in turn reintroduced the works of the proletariat political champion German writer philosopher Karl Marx. Of course the czar and his family didn't approve of the revolutionary implications to Marx's works a series of assassination attempts on the Romanov family had put the regime on edge. To speak highly of marks was to court the possibility of Siberian exile. These were dangerous and exciting times full of new philosophies new movements and new punishments to be executed upon overzealous revolutionaries but Trotsky was raised away from all this born November seventh eighteen seventy nine into a small Ukrainian village fifteen miles from the nearest post office. Originally named Lev Davidovich Bronstein Trotsky was fifth of eight children. Born to farmers David Leonti Bitch Bronstein Anna Baba he was a somewhat fragile boy prone to fainting spells when scared but he was fortunate in other Ways David. Bronstein had spent his life fighting religious prejudice with his work ethic and by loves birth. He had managed to sizable income for the family. This later embarrassed Trotsky who hoped to convince his followers that he grew up solidly working class. Trotsky would inherit his father's work ethic but farming wasn't in his blood. His early classwork suggested a much more intellectual path for the young boy but for any chance for higher education. Young love couldn't remain in the backwoods Ukrainian countryside. He would have to leave. You know FCA and so at the age of nine. Love traveled two hundred miles to the city of Odessa where he would live with his cousin. Moshe Scientific Journalist and attend Saint Paul Secondary School that the school was Christian. Didn't matter much to loves family. David was more impressed at Saint. Paul's was the second best grammar school in the city. But I didn't allow Jews and placed higher priority in education and religious piety on the impression must have stuck with a young boy. Trotsky would be an atheist for life but whatever. The religion of his teachers left proved the star pupil rarely. Was there an exam? That left didn't receive the highest mark in the class and yet loves greatest. Lessons likely came from outside the classroom. Odessa was a large metropolis. Exposed to travel customs. Cultures and ideas rarely found in farm country. And of course there was also his cousin motions printing press all right now the E. We painted right here. You See yes bow. Where's the V. V. Steady There L. E. V? Who's that how many how many? How many can we make as much as you want? You can make copies for all your friends for your teachers. Let friends glad to friends.

Then I'll quit telling you come. I smell something better than ink and OIL COMING COMMAND KITCHEN. And so it began to the dismay of his father. Love preferred writing to all other school subjects. Despite his excellence in math and science but his political interests wouldn't spring for MOESHA'S BASEMENT. That would come post eighteen ninety five when fifteen year old. Trotsky left Odessa to finish his education in smaller port. City of Nikolaev. Not that lead showed much enthusiasm for school anymore. Board of lectures he took to playing hooky exploring the city for other sources of enlightenment and within a few years stumbled upon a small group of intellectuals trading and printing materials on psychology economics and socialism. Make no mistake. This was some serious contraband. Many of the group's members were formerly or currently in exile for sharing such materials but love the youngest by year's dove headlong into the new material. He soon proved himself. One of the most eloquent obstinate and arrogant definitely arrogant members of the group though still occasionally fainting under stress. He learned to control heated arguments with the skill of a surgeon. A member of the group commented quite prophetically. He'll be a great hero or a great scoundrel but he'll rise to greatness. Still he met his match in. Alexandra socal sky the group's hardcore Marxist sure for those who need it instruction manual to their own opinions. Marxism as ideal. No marks the conclusion. You'd rather steel lines from every other Socialists than actually compile a philosophy and say something about the world. I'd rather not split personality to conform to some narrow teaching right there. You stole that from Mikhailovsky. Dear God will someone. Please make them stop. You know what your problem is. Alexandra please share you. Expect someone to have the answer. You don't realize to what extent you must pick through the fragmentations of the current political detritus that we call and do the work yourself. You know what your problem is was that you're an asshole. They soon fell in love. And trotsky would later concede to Alexandra switching to lifelong Marxism together. He Alexandra began printing revolutionary pamphlets for the group. But not for long. In January of eighteen. Ninety eight an informant tipped off police to Levin Alexandra's amateur press officers raided the house. The next day took upstairs the pamphlets. We're under the bed anywhere. Another show Daryl over live. I can't I can only stop. Stop what are we going to do? What do you think of Siberia and so at Nineteen Years Old? Trotsky would go into exile for the first time fortunately for Eleven Alexandra Married Couples. Have the right to stay together through exile. They rushed a ceremony became husband and wife and spent the first summer of the new century. Traveling fourteen hundred miles to the small village of ood cut their new home. As far as exile went boost cut ran fairly mid level. The weather was harsh but not. Arctic Disease Ran Rampant. But the guards weren't sadistic the newlywed. Bronstein were allowed to go into town. Work odd jobs in accounting and start a new life. Alexander soon gave birth to their first daughter Zinaida and their second Nina a year later these days would be the last quiet era in Trotsky is life for a long time. It was domestic family oriented. Simple simple good. Last for Lev Bronstein. A newspaper named eastern review began publishing his writings under the pen. Name anted auto and soon gave him running column entitled Everyday Rural Life. His wit for the ironies of Russian countryside soon found a steady and then growing readership he would critique the government laud socialism and taunt the sensors all with a subtlety that kept him from rest for instance he spoke of the local care for the mentally ill. They were kept for observation in prisons. Which because of the lack of hospitals were renamed the Psychiatric Department of the local Sanitary Authority in one case to homeless invalids. In old insurgent in an old policemen policemen who had once escorted the insurgent to the place of deportation lived in the same prison cell for lack of other asylum.

The book that I got that exit from is IDA stored among lions talking about some of the early history of thing it was methodist. I believe As apology getting's and yeah so this is one of the reasons that you see so much of this negativity associated with black women as wives and romantic conquests and stuff stuff because it's ingrained. Anti blackness is literally a thing. It's not like you have to examine yourself and and why you however these these feelings about black women. How much of you have been program by that? How much how many people how much of that needs to be undone and unworkable? You know because I still would not sick any black man who believed in this year on some black unsuspecting black woman have to deal with this trauma but This is white men. I'm talking about right so back. Then these white men who America was built for them right they should have any rights rights to do anything they want to. Yes but if I if a white man just so happened to truly fall in love with Mary Black Woman if bucked up his future prospects bakes so bad that the idea of being mayor or at elected office people were that raises. They're like no you have a black wife. justaposed suppose that with a nother white man who came down and Rampart office. who had a black woman that he was living with and a black sun but he never married her and they were like? I'll vote for you because you understand. They're not equal to us. That's the only thing they needed. that man understand. In order to be an elected official is hey the danger here is insane that these people are equal to us and and we can't have that so you can't have office unless you're willing to show. Hey I while I sleep with a black woman I definitely would never do her to honor on a of marrying her marriage reserved for white people to marry to white. People ever blacks two blacks for a long time. We wouldn't have to do that. That's probably jump jumped Abreu. Yeah you know and I think also that's why to this day see a lot of A lot of people that really Maybe without thinking about it still covet whiteness in that way to you know because because I think one of the one of the reasons that you know what's the keep. The Whiteness is white. Womanhood above black. Womanhood is about protecting white women under white maleness. And so the worst possible thing you could do was to marry someone who was not a white woman if you were white like this is the honor. This is the only thing August to do. And here you are throwing away. No I don't want to vote for you. I don't want US making decisions right in many many years later it was the white man and it won't black woman. It was like a the fuck. You don't tell me what I is and ain't GonNa do and they end up saying well dances. The white man wants go Mary Black Woman. I guess we'll pass how to say that people can marry interracially but it took a white man going. You're not taking my goddamn rice isolate from me before it even got published. Yeah I think you're talking about loving versus Virginia which is a landmark decision by the US Supreme Court struck down laws banning interracial marriage as violations of the equal protection and due process clauses of the fourteenth amendment. But only because the idea there was was a white man should be able to do whatever they want to do. Whatever so in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven? It was like Oh ugh. Oh isn't that long ago at all is why people have conflicting like they don't really celebrate people. Try to have loving day because like look at this interracial marriage but this it's hard to celebrate because it's really about a white man should not be able to not be told he can't do anything this is in the middle of this nineteen sixty seven so this is in the middle middle of civil rights struggles and segregation and You know all of this type of stuff happening and then you have basically someone say. Well we're okay for now for white men. They can do what they want. But Yeah Mirror get away from the counter row right and isn't it wasn't all the way around you. Black Man couldn't marry a white one where he could but you increase the chance of being harassed possibly lynched. Yeah you know and so yeah. I think that's one of the reasons that people have such a high esteem around white woman is right like how many black men even talk about white women and they're not talking about white women. Will you talk about like a car right. Like I was a white woman. I would not want someone to me like that but you know I'm not want us. I can't speak for them. But you know to me. That wouldn't be ideal. That's not love when someone who's just going on with you because you're not a black woman woman you're not this type of woman and like I said it's like achievement. I got a good job and the white woman you know a may have made it. I made it you know so. Yeah it's kind of interesting because like well those black men who talk like that. Where did they get this idea from? The white women are better and I think also because incentivized by our society right because what society he is telling you is. We're not going to complicate your. We're not gonNA complicate your life if you marry a white one right like we're the problems problems of race and slavery and Misogyny and stuff are going to follow you out a live long day as long as you're with this black woman so this woman is just one more area of your life whereas no no longer problem and now we know that's bullshit that's not true but still that is what society is telling you like. This was an achievement. This is this is a good job. You know things like that so this is the quote unquote reward right so I just thought that was interesting. Right is one of those black women for some reason aren't considering award. You know when it comes to us. We're accident accident a goal. We're not considered something to cover it. We're not considered something to love unconditionally and negative topic. But that's when you get into the Black Birmingham Communism and wipe them Anisim and how you have a lot of white women pushing in are rejecting this thing of loving loving being sexy nowadays shit they reject that you know. I know because you've always been that so to you is that that's that's the that's the standard. So you go okay. I'm tired of at this meeting covered. I want something else now. You know and bid we've never been coveted and loved and wanted and felt sexist though we're actually wanting your quote unquote bare minimum and sometimes becomes a problem. Because you know why women I know don't comedies and don't say this and don't say that and you have a lot of black women were like yes. I want to be a gold. I want to be wanted. You know I want to be desire. I desire to dress sexy and I and I and I am okay. You Know Oh with the the the the gaze of men looking like like I am fine I am content. You know with that is sometimes. I think it becomes a conflict because because why women go Yada Yada should be over there and we've been talking about like obviously yes the race element. I agree and I think also just the complexities of womanhood womanhood because when you been quote unquote property. Will you an even for white women. It's been like yeah we want you but we want you to. We want houses this not as quality that white women have gotten so their rebellion as being like no we can get the property Pity ourselves we can get the job ourselves. We want the money ourselves. That's been there thing. Black women have been working in America from day one mostly in pay right and so then when when when equality comes for black people black men and have an idea of equality is mirroring during whiteness. in which the white male dominated household and therefore controls the you know the black woman and the child all this stuff and expects the same you know how worship that the white man gets in his home distract all hail when she liked the fuck. Fuck you what. The difference is black woman working the whole time right so there is no patriarchy you can offer because even if you don't think it's smart so you just think it's really fucked up. Why women who buy into Patriarchy do benefit from proximity to white maleness? Patriarchy is about white maleness. Everybody body that benefits from that essentially as saying I expect white men's favor right even when it's been Carson Delaware Donald Trump. He expects white a white man's favor to trickle down to him right. Well when it comes to black women. They're like I already do the work already. You know you're not you're not providing for household and I'm just sitting on my ass. You're not affording me people that come in and clean my house for me August. You're not doing that on an average so I don't want to be told in addition to your work come home cooking cleaning. Raise the kids by yourself itself. Proudest of for black men. The dream of freedom was not one of the shared gender equality. It was one of Oh white mountainous. I'll have a job. You'll raise the babies. We'll just have two point five kids and the picket fence and all this shit and so I think that's where the disconnect will always be and that's why all all the all the women are white and all the blacks are men. Because you really do have. This light was good for black. People was what's good for black men was good for women is what's good for white women and left out of the equation. Every time is black women which is why you have black women and they're like Yo. I have to create an entirely different category. Oy for my political beliefs because nothing. You guys have encapsulates what I want out of life and I don't need the group I'm always lift down in in that trickle down white man don't took it down to Earth unless unless it's a while book you or you can have my kids crossover. I'll never cross over the right like but as far whereas the white men desiring you know historically you know after that can happen but historically no that has that has not happened you know even worse man in the more you read about this shit the you know the kind of worse he gives but white man have always wanted black women sexually and not in a good way not come on his property and they don't have rights you wanting them is not exactly a good proposition position. It doesn't necessarily mean romance and Wu and love and consent right. No but the biggest trick. I feel like there's been poured on America's this idea that black women are these on one it unattractive people and white man of course just want white women issue. It was clearly not true. Our history says natural ally tonight we'll because so volatile and dangerous to bring because so quote unquote shameful is like this and it just gets passed on and it's become the law. That is the truth right like it. You look at dating sites cite statistics. They show like black women. Get the response from people like you see that people have bought into this. But it's not now not saying this is equal to respect keep in mind. I'm saying that this is the same as someone looking at you as a person that I respect and I wanNA marry or want to be in a serious relationship with whatever you know. We're GONNA make you happy. I'm not saying that but even the idea that physically people don't want black women is something that's permeated our society and it doesn't make sense because clearly clearly. A huge part of the population of black people is only here because white man couldn't keep their hands off of black women right. So yeah it's a doubly the insulting thing and then when you have historical texts like what I just read where there's like saying. Hey this man only couldn't make it as a politician because he chose to marry a woman who was a quadrennial which is a fourth black so one of her parents was like half black so that just that much blackness they said. We don't want you to be a politician. We won't vote for you. This other man full black woman has house. Full black baby lived there and everything and they said well. We'll vote for cause he's smart enough not to marry a black woman and that was okay with them and that Shit permeates our society to to this very fucking day.

"leon" Discussed on World Cafe
"The views. That's MRs by Leon bridges off his latest record call, good thing. So what can world cafe, hey, when I was listening to that song, one thing that I thought was really interesting that I didn't hear on your on your first album is is the way they, you got a little bit more risque lyrics going on this time around maybe the last time in the ways that you read about love and sex, and I enjoyed that. But I was wondering if there was a moment where you're like, can I can I can. I can. I say what I'm saying here. It was. It was pretty fun to kind of push the envelope a little bit and be a little bit more ambitious about some of the lyrical themes. And with that particular song, I was like, yo, it'd be dope to have a caller response course, you know me and guitar. And so that's where the wind Mattel. Don't go. Who. And yeah, it was awesome working, but name Mercer Owen in Ricky read. That's cool. Read was your producer totally a still work with Austin Jenkins in joss block who produced coming home if I record. Yeah. And the guys from white denim. So yeah, we did a lot of writing back and forth worth in. So we started from scratch in. That's the good thing. Album start from scratch. Everything that we put on this album. We're going to write for this album knew for sure. And yeah, go ahead. Yeah, we haven't. We had about twenty thirty jams that we recorded in only one of those made the good thing album. That's Georgia. The Texas. Wow, I love that song so much. It's really, truly beautiful. First of all, musically, it's it's really interesting because it stretches out. It's like free jazz. Almost tell me first musically like where where you wanted to go on this on at the time that I wrote it, I was really heavy on town. Van Zandt self titled album and song waiting around to die really inspired the jamming. I wanted to write my own version of in a way I love so. Yeah, a little bit of the towns van Zandt song that you that you reference now just remind people what it is waiting around to die. Panama even had a Paul. Really beat her with the Bill once because she cra-. She told him to take Kimmy. Tennessee. It's you didn't just the way around. Townes van Zandt waiting around to die. That's a song inspired. My guess me. I'm bridges for the closing track on his latest record called good thing. So the lyrics on this song are so striking, five wolf for that girl carried me now five zero, four area code for New Orleans. Listen, the physician mom, you're singing about your wants from New Orleans..
